The NeXT Computer was used to invent the World Wide Web and the first AppStore both. The NeXT Computer brought together for the first time, the very same computer tools and technologies used to create your iPhone, and every one of the apps you use with it.
It’s 1990. There’s no web to surf. To purchase software, people would visit a place called Egg Head.
The first web browser had no back button, bookmarks or even the ability to drag a URL and when Steve Jobs first saw the App Store demo he said only three words: “I like it”.
The NeXT was the 20th Century platform used to create the two software technologies billions use everyday here in the 21st Century – the combination of the web to publish content and the AppStore to protect digital rights provided the foundation for the mobile computing revolution of today.
This one computer would become the most broadly influential innovation producer of the 20th Century, while gaining less than a sliver of marketshare. Today, for the very first time, the story of the digital revolution, history’s greatest computer and the technologies that engineers created which changed the world, is finally being told.
